Long Description:
Constellation of Voices is a figurative sculpture of a head which is 13.5' high by 6.8' wide by 6' deep and weighing approximately 1,400 pounds. The head is cast in aluminum, covered with gold leaf and set on an aluminum plinth. The sculpture was created in conjunction with the Metropolitan Opera's visual arts initiative in 2019 by George Condo.

According to the artist:

Constellation of Voices “is the material form of sound … what it looks like and how it shines like gold when it is in perfect harmony…I wanted to reflect a mythological and abstract world from every culture composed of pre-classical civilizations, the chorus of Greek drama and the abstraction of modern day opera.”
